Ingredients
  1. 5 lbs. Potatoes
  2. 2 to 3 large fish fillets
  3. 1 large onion
  4. 1 stick butter
  5. 1-2 cups flour (as much as is needed for desired consistency)
Optional
  1. corn
  2. several cloves garlic, minced -OR- dried chopped garlic to taste
Instructions
  1. This recipe is adjustable by the amount of ingredients used. This soup is good the next few days, so I tend to make a large pot of it. 4 to 5 # potatoes to 2 or 3 large fish fillets. I tend to cook without salt & pepper and season later.
  2. In large Stock Pot: Peel potatoes and cube, they do not need to be all the same size roughly 1 ½ to 2 inches. Add enough water to just cover potatoes. Put on stove to bring to a boil.
  3. Peel medium to large onion, sliced or diced, add to potatoes.
  4. Optional: Several cloves garlic, minced or use dried chopped garlic to taste.
  5. Cut cleaned, skinned fish filets in 2 inch strips pulling out any obvious bones. Rinse in cold water, changing water several times. Place in colander to drip off excess water.
  6. Take 1/2 cup of the potato water out of the pot to cool before adding the fish or corn.
  7. Mix the ½ cup cooled potato water with flour ( you want it fairly thick) to thicken soup later.
  8. Optional: can of corn, undrained or creamed corn, can use frozen corn just put in to potatoes when half cooked.
  9. When potatoes are almost cooked drop in fish strips and 1 stick butter. Stirring occasionally. Fish will break in to chunks
  10. When fish is cooked ( 5 – 10 minutes ) Stir in flour water mixture,( if really lumpy pour thru a sieve) Stirring constantly (carefully don’t want to mush up the fish ) until thickened. Stir in 1 to 2 cups half and half ( or more to taste ) If necessary can add instant mashed potatoes a little at a time to thicken .
Notes
  1. Optional: Before serving: Fried bacon pieces & some bacon drippings added to soup
